Assessing medical industry compensation to physicians by gender

JAMA Network

About The Study: In this analysis of 1,050 payments made by medical industry companies, male physicians received significantly higher payments from the highest-grossing companies compared with female physicians. This disparity persisted across all medical specialties and academic ranks. The health care industry gender payment gap continued to increase from 2013 to 2019, with a wider compensation gap in 2019.
